ARCADE is a collaborative installation at Simone DeSousa EDITION, activating the gallery and courtyard as a dynamic Design Month destination for the second consecutive year. Serpentine concrete forms weave through the space punctuated by furniture pieces. Cast from ready-made corrugated irrigation tubes, the rippling surface of the concrete arches offer tactile engagement. The whimsical installation invites visitors to wander in to commune, reflect, or simply be.

Following the gallery installation, ARCADE will be permanently installed in the Midtown neighborhood of Detroit. 

Featured in Design Milk’s “Getting Ready for Detroit’s Month of Design: Here’s What We’re Excited For” and “For the Most Exciting Design Scene No One’s Talking About, Head to Detroit” in Dwell.

ARCADE was generously sponsored by Midtown Detroit Inc.
